When I lived on the prairies, I just took my 4 x 4.
Yea unfurtunaly its a straight 55° down to the lake (it was a open pit mine in the 1940s) so its impossible to get there with a car or truck
You just have to use the really crappy and sketchy stairs leading down

I tie it to the front of the boat and i have my buddy hold on to in incase i cant start the motor or the current is too strong for it. So incase he can pull me to shore safely (i also have a really crappy paddle that cant paddle for sh*t) just being extra safe

Be careful man, i think most of the ice is gone by you that water is still really cold. If you go in you'll probably take a deep breath in without even trying called the cold water reflex(ask me how i know lol) just don't panic, swim to the surface and exhale the water. It sucks but you can go for a minute with lungs full of frigid river water.
